how would you approach this? switching rooms
We have 2 upstairs bedrooms.......in the past it was DD12 and DD16 in one room.....and DD14 and SD16 in one room. They have a little living room (cannot be used as a bedroom just FYI) upstairs as well so the upstairs is 100% the kids.
About a year ago my DD16 decided to stay with her dad full time.......so since then the room share is DD12 and DD14.....and then SD16 has her own. I had a baby during this time so I didn't really think about it.....as far as the rooms go.
SD16 has the largest room with large closet, and my DD12 and DD14 have the smaller room and small closet and its cramped for 2 people.
How would you approach the subject of switching rooms? My kids have been asking. SD16 I think will not be on board. My kids are at the house 50% of the time, and SD16 is there about 30% of the time.
I bought the house with my own money before we got married so it wasn't DH's house or SD's house (it is now I'm just saying that me and my kids didn't move into their home).....if that matters. We did all move into the house at the same together, though.
My thought is that I just tell DH we are switching b/c 2 kids together need a bigger room and closet. end of story. SD is begging errr ummm insisting to re-do her room (you know b/c DH and I got new stuff for the house and our room and its not fair haha.......so I don't want DH re-doing anything in her current room.......before I get a chance to make the switch..
